As many as one million Americans, including Michael J. Fox and Muhammad Ali, suffer from Parkinson's Disease. Now, a leader in the fight against Parkinson's, Dr. J. Eric Ahlskog of the Mayo Clinic, has revised and updated his definitive guide for patients and their families. Dr. Ahlskog offers a crystal-clear, nuts-and-bolts approach to the treatment of PD, distilled from more than 30 years of experience as a clinician and researcher. His goal is to educate patients so that they can better team with their doctors to do battle with the disease, streamlining the decision-making process and enhancing their treatment. To do this, Dr. Ahlskog offers a gold mine of information: How do I know if I have PD? What kinds of tests can I take? What medications slow the progress of the disease? What if medications don't help my tremor? What kinds of movement problems may develop later? How can I cope with insomnia and daytime sleepiness, dizziness and depression, memory problems, paranoia, and delusions? Indeed, the book covers virtually every topic related to Parkinson's, from sexual impotence and skin rashes, to the role of nutrition, exercise, and physical therapy. In addition, Dr. Ahlskog discusses brain surgery (though he urges that patients only consider this as a last resort) and such experimental therapies as stem cell transplantation and gene therapy. There are also lists of support and advocacy groups and Web sites that focus on Parkinson's. The ultimate guide to symptoms and treatment, this thoroughly updated Second Edition is the first place patients should turn for reliable, easy-to-grasp information on Parkinson's disease.

"In this book, Dr. Ahlskog provides a logical, comprehensive, and efficacious treatment approach to all aspects of this disorder. He tells the reader which drugs work best for specific problems and how to dose. Where controversies threaten to paralyze therapeutic options, he addresses these with available data, ultimately settling on those choices that can best be defended by experience and published evidence. A discussion of the role for deep brain stimulation surgery and criteria for patient selection are provided. Although focused on therapeutics, this book covers the broad needs of clinicians including diagnosing and differentiating PD from similar conditions. Testing and counseling issues are discussed in detail."--BOOK JACKET.

Parkinson's Disease is a neurodegenerative disorder of the central nervous system which affects movement, muscle control and balance. In addition to these "motor symptoms," patients with Parkinson's Disease are also affected by "non-motor symptoms" including cognitive disturbances such as dementia, depression and hallucinations as well as autonomic dysfunction. Diagnosis of the disease is crucial and misdiagnosis is frequent. Enormous advances have been made in recent decades in the understanding of the clinical features, aetiology, pathology of the disease, as well as in the provision of new treatments. Part of the Oxford Neurology Library series, this concise and practical pocketbook provides an up-to-date practical text on the management of Parkinson's Disease. Chapters outline the causes and clinical features of the disease, as well as its diagnosis and assessment. Specific chapters concentrate on the management of motor and non-motor symptoms, as well as on the mansgement of early Parkinson's Disease. This pocketbook will serve as a useful guide for the non-specialist neurologist, including those in training, and also those wishing to develop an interest in movement disorders.
